Naomi and Nir

Naomi ordered a 6th year wedding anniversary card for her husband back in September. She sent me a photo of their wedding day and asked me to recreate it for the card.
The blue-eyed bride is blonde, and her husband is dark. He wore a cream suit with a gold waistcoat on their wedding day, and the bride wore ivory. She sent me a short inscription for the front, and asked me to add a 6 somewhere on the card.
It seems that Naomi was thrilled with the card. "It's amazing how much it looks like our photo" she wrote to me. I was delighted when she shared my work on Facebook too. We both belong to an Israeli women entrepreneurs' networking group and Naomi shared her excitement over the card there.
"Check out this amazing card that Lisa Isaacs made for my husband for our anniversary. Not only did she only have a thumbnail photo to deal with, but at 9am yesterday morning after telling her our anniversary is on the 18th, I messaged her that our Jewish date [the Jewish calendar has its own unique months] was last night and any chance it was ready. It wasn't, but she made sure I could pick it up yesterday. For any special cards, I highly recommend talking to Lisa."
